Where this game will be won is the defensive end and the Rabbitohs have shown over their past 5 games that they have taken a step up in the defensive department allowing only 13.2 points per game to their opponents. This is a massive adjustment for a team that gave up 34.8 points per game in the preceding 10 matches.

The Dolphins are in a slump right now and have allowed their opponents 26.8 points per game across their last 5 whilst only scoring 18.75 in their 4 losses. 

Both teams will be without key players due to Origin but Souths are on a roll and we all know - defence wins games!

  • South Sydney are conceding only 13.2 points per game across their last 5 matches
  • The Dolphins are conceding 26.8 points per game across their last 5 matches
  • The Dolphins are last in the NRL in Tackle Busts, averaging only 29.1 per game
  • Cody Walker has scored 3 tries in his last 4 games as the Rabbits halfback

The Dolphins are coming off their final bye of the season in round 18 and are on a two game losing streak. They have also only won 1 of their last 5 with this being right around the time the team dropped off a cliff last year, winning only 2 of their last 10 games.

The men from Redcliffe are still 3rd in the league in Points Scored pointing to a drop off in their defensive capabilities which has been evident across this losing period.

Souths have gone from probably the worst team in the comp to almost the best team in the comp over the past 7 weeks winning 5 games in a row, either scoring an amazing amount of points or restricting their opponents to nil. 

Latrell Mitchell has rediscovered some form which has people asking whether he maybe was carrying an injury in the early part of the season or if it is the coaching change which has made the difference. 
In their most recent win over the Eels, Souths managed 6 tries despite only having 34% of Territory and amassing only 1333 Run Metres.

With Latrell Mitchell out injured Jye Gray once again comes into the fullback role to cover. Cam Murray is on Origin duty with Michael Chee Kam coming into the backrow as his replacement.

Liam Le Blanc is the new man on the bench in his second NRL game of the season.
